Hard To…. Swallow!


It’s bloody freezing out there and it’s only a couple of weeks ago that we had nearly a foot of snow but a chilled Sunday evening walk around Stourhead with a couple of cans of Thatchers has reassured me that summer is really on its way. The surface of the lake was alive with feeding Swallows and their almost depth defying aero acrobatics.

The light was low and I had to jack up the ISO to get a fast enough shutter speed to freeze the action. That twinned with my 24-105mm f/.4 I didn’t have the reach to get close chrisp shots and burst mode was a must and out of a hundred or so shots I got… 2


I’m not complaining though, the spectacle was amazing.
